With the past week of heavy snow across Britain, you should easily be able to see any efficiency issues with your current conservatory.
We are expecting some shockingly low temperatures in Britain this week along with blizzards and arctic conditions that will bring the nation to a standstill. Trains, planes and automobiles will be unable to move around the country and everybody will be stranded in their homes living off the supplies they have stored for this potential end of the world scenario. Okay, it is possible that a lot of the news channels and maybe even the opening of this blog post may be slightly exaggerating the results of the extremely cold weather.
However, during any snowfall, you should be able to tell how efficient your conservatory actually is. When snow lands and settles on your conservatory roof it is very much a good idea to keep an eye on how quickly it melts. Many older conservatories did not have very thermally efficient roofs, and you may find that you are losing a lot of heat.
The biggest sign of this is a conservatory that is too hot to use in the summer and too cold to comfortably use in the winter, another great sign of how good your conservatory is at keeping its heat inside during the winter is how long it takes for the snow to melt.
If you notice that the snow on your conservatory roof is melting considerably faster than the snow on your house roof, it may be time to consider upgrading your conservatory or at least its roof.
There are several options to improve the thermal efficiency of your conservatory roof and here are some of the options available from Halstead Glass.
Of course, another alternative to updating your conservatory roof is to update your whole conservatory as the modern builds use much more efficient thermally insulated glass. Whichever way you choose to go, if you notice your conservatory has poor thermal efficiency contact Halstead Glass to see which options suit your conservatory best.
